Research Plan

Prior to each secondment, researchers need to complete and submit a Research Plan, which records up-to-date research objectives. The Research Plan is significant for a number of reasons. It is necessary for the host institutes, as it enables them to efficiently plan their incoming secondments and to make the necessary resources available. Furthermore, it is of importance to the UKNA Secretariat, which will use the Research Plan for reporting to the European Commission.

Please make sure to complete the Research Plan as soon as possible in advance of your secondment and to share it with:

  • Your home institute
  • Your host institute (see page 2 and 3 of the Research Plan template for the necessary contact information)
  • The UKNA Secretariat (info@ukna.asia)

In case of any changes to your Research Plan, such as a change of dates or a change of topic, please re-submit your Research Plan, so that the home and host institutes and the UKNA Secretariat have the latest information.

Please note that, in addition to this form, researchers should ensure to familiarise themselves with any additional requirements as stipulated by their host institutes and host countries. More information about these requirements can be found under Planning Your Trip.

Research Report

After each secondment, researchers need to complete and submit a Research Report, which records research methods, research outputs, evaluates research objectives and gives conclusions and recommendations. The Research Report is significant for a number of reasons. It is important for the host institutes, as it enables them to evaluate their incoming secondments.  Furthermore, it is of importance to the UKNA Secretariat, which will use it for reporting to the European Commission.

Please make sure to complete the Research Report within 1 month after the end of your secondment and to share it with:

  • Your home institute
  • Your host institute (see pages 2 and 3 of the Research Report template for the necessary contact information)
  • The UKNA Secretariat (info@ukna.asia)
